Case 40XT lift arms won't lift?

I went ahead and bought that theft recovery 40XT I posted about a few weeks ago.

It ran great at the sellers and worked fine getting it after the trailer.

I jumped in it about an hour later and the lift arms won't lift.

The tilt function works perfect but the arms wont go up or down.

It seems like the interlock isn't releasing but it drives and tilts fine.

Any ideas?? Thanks.

You might want to post on justanswer.com I have gotten some good advice from that site that has kept me from going to the dealer.

It seems like an interlock interuption would keep it from tilting as well. I would wonder if it was the "hydraulic spool" for the up down function. In a bobcat brand machine, they have some orings that go bad and little filter that could get clogged up. Or it could be a broken linkage from foot pedals back to valve.

if it has a door on it check the door switch. a lot of the machines with swing open doors will have a switch to lock the lift off if the door is open

We had a similar problem with our 85xt. If I remember right it was the seat switch. We raised the cab and that started the problem. If you raise the cab you have to set the cab back down before you set the seat down. If you set the seat down first it will get wedged in there and hold the seat switch up slightly. If that makes sense kind of hard to explain.

Did it effect lift and not tilt?

Some times it would do that, and other times it would go a few hundred feet and lock the e brake. It may not be the problem but just an idea.

I had the same problem with a 40xt I had...ended up to be a bad design on the lift solenoid where the electric wire ran into it...could get water in it easily and corrode the connection. Case came out with an updated version. They aren't that expensive and are easy to install.

I think there is one for the tilt and one for the lift.
